My husband’s strawberry patch has started producing berries for the year. They are not the big, big ones you buy in stores but still decent sized.

And as you can see, there are more beginning to ripen.

strawberry plants blossoming in our garden

My mother in law had these strawberry plants given to her a couple of years ago.  She planted them by her trailer but they basically didn’t grow, except for the ones under her porch.   

So she gave them to us.  DH dug them up and transplanted them to two huge tractor tires filled with dirty.  

The chickens thought they were theirs and spent most of the falling digging in those tires.  So much so that we didn’t think any survived.  

Guess we were wrong.
